This summer, Walt Disney World guests can get a little art culture thanks to a brand new art exhibition coming to the American Heritage Gallery at The American Adventure in Epcot called Creating Tradition: Innovation and Change in American Indian Art.
The new installation highlights the importance of traditional Native culture in contemporary American Indian art.
Creating Tradition: Innovation and Change in American Indian Art will come together through a collective collaboration of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C., and the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Featured artists on display include doll maker Glenda McKay (Ingalik-Athabascan), fashion designer Loren Aragon (Acoma Pueblo), and Juanita Growing Thunder (Assiniboine Sioux) from the Growing Thunder family in Montana.
Guests will be able to enjoy interactive elements, which allow the artists to share their creative process and inspiration behind their works.
An opening date for Creating Tradition: Innovation and Change in American Indian Art hasn’t yet been announced, but guests can look forward to it sometime this summer. Stay tuned for more details.
Epcot guests are used to presenting exhibitions and cultural experiences. The Orlando theme park often incorporates live entertainment, cultural representation of Cast Members, film experiences showcasing each country, architecture and dining experiences throughout the World Showcase.
The current exhibition, the Kinsey Collection, will dissolve after a five-year engagement.
